Full description
This tour shows off the innovation of Medellin. Medellin has long suffered from a bad reputation especially due to extinct drug cartels, but the city has changed and is generating a new mentality in people.

On this tour, visit what was one of the most unsafe neighborhoods in Colombia in the 80’s and 90’s and has since undergone an incredible transformation. Today, it’s a safe place to walk through and to take in the colorful graffiti, which represents a new era for the community. Join this tour and discover the great stories behind them.

On this 4-hour private tour, you will visit Museo Casa de la Memoria, Metro Cable Line J, and meet a local guide at Comuna 13. Discover Comuna 13 escalators, the hip hop house, and San Javier Library Park.
